About Julie Doucet

Considered by many to be one of the most influential cartoonists ever, Julie Doucet began her studies at the CÉGEP du Vieux Montréal and later completed a degree in print media at the Université du Québec à Montréal. In 1991 Drawn & Quarterly published her first major series Dirty Plotte, which first began life as a photocopied fanzine. Doucet spent the 90s chronicling in comic form her experiences of living in New York, Seattle, and Berlin. In 1998 she returned to Montréal where she announced she was abandoning the medium of comic books to focus on other art forms. Woodcuts, linocuts, silkscreen printing, and an abundant production of artist’s books followed, including a return to the comic format. Doucet currently lives and works in Montréal.
